Formula Renault 2.0 - Zhuhai

The Circuit.

Z.I.C - Zhuhai Internationl Circuit


With the approval of the F.I.A, ZIC was the first Formula 1 standard track in China.


It is comprised of 14 turns, with a longest straight of 900 m on which certain race cars are capable of reaching a speed of over 300 km/h.


After the long straight line, all the cars will reach their top speed before entering T1, the first corner. In 1999, a Porsche racing car reached 290 km/h at the end of the straight line, we believe that it is possible to reach a top speed of over 300km/h.


4th Corner - This is a difficult left turn but maybe one of the best places for overtaking. After driving through the 3rd corner with high speed, drivers will try to brake late in order to try to overtake other racers.


9th-10th Corner - The situation of the 9th corner is quite similiar to the 4th corner. Since it is very close to the 10th corner, many drivers will loose control.


14th Corner - It's the last and the fastest corner of the circuit, drivers will brake slightly to keep maximum entry speed in order to reach highest possible straight line speed, right in front of the grandstand.


ZIC is considered a very fast circuit.
